Welcome to Lines, Dots, and Doodles. This is the place for students, parents, and teachers to find out what has been going on in my art class. I have included pictures of my student's artwork and basic explanations of the projects. I hope when you leave this blog, you feel inspired to create. Feel free to browse this blog and borrow any of my art lessons.

Cultural Landscapes, 4th Grade
This was an art integrated lesson that was co-taught with the librarian at my school. In library, the students researched a country of their choosing. They also wrote about their country. Then in art, the students drew a landscape of that country. I borrowed a few Chromebooks and library books, so students could research the features of their country's landscape.
Using observational skills, students drew landscapes using photos as reference. Students drew in pencil, outlined in marker, and painted with watercolors.
Each one turned out different, and the students are so proud of them! This is one of my favorite assignments from this school year! We will be displaying these at International Night at my school.
